Episode 2477: World Number 1 V World Cup Champs, Ken On Rugby, Conte And Rassie
We start today’s show by testing Ken’s rugby knowledge, before getting into the challenge awaiting Spurs tonight as they attempt to make it to the Champions League last 16.
Ireland are currrently the number 1 ranked team in the world and Andy Farrrell doesn’t want his players to shy away from that fact. We look at his coaching superpower and if his bold attacking gameplan will work against the best defence in international rugby.
We ask Shane Horgan and Andrew Trimble how different a challenge this is for Farrell’s team compared to that posed by NZ and 6N sides, how important it is that Ireland win, how much of a factor it is that Rassie Erasmus is back on the touchline for South Africa, and we ask who should be in our back three with James Lowe, Keith Earls and Andrew Conway all injured and Hugo Keenan only on his way back from a medium term injury.
